    Who is the 3EC?

    I'm almost certain that it isn't Bloodraven, mainly because of his confusion when asked about it directly, but also because of "a thousand eyes and one", not three. That said I can't seem to come up with another candidate.

    Please explain Ramsay and the Pink Letter.

    It just occured to me that whoever wrote the letter, does not have Stannis's sword, nor even has come to realize there's no magic in it by other means.

    POV's You'd Like to See?

    Ramsay and Euron. It's unlike our author to write such cartoonish villians, so it would be interesting to know what justifications make them heroes in their own minds.

    Cutting tongues.

    Is it even confirmed that he's taken anyone's tongue? I always read the line "if they kept their tongues" in the same metaphorical way that we use it, meaning "If they kept quiet"

    The Order of the Green Hand

    I enjoy their videos for the different perspective and usually good presentation, but they constantly overreach and draw connections that aren't really there.

    Touch of grey(scale)?

    Is Drogon the most iconic dragon of all time?

    Falcor by far

    Quick question for R+L=J believers.

    No, that passage just really stuck out to me on re-read. I've seen a couple of their videos though. Pretty out there stuff, but well presented.

    Quick question for R+L=J believers.

    Yeah, I figured out that I hadn't thought that through after posting and tried to edit, but that edit didn't make much sense either, so I'll just say I'm not sure. I'm not convinced in any direction of Jon's parentage, so I imagine a lot of this is wishful thinking on my part that GRRM is too good a writer to allow the hidden prince cliche embodied in RLJ.

    Yes, you convinced me that Jon was part of the questioning, but this only strengthens NAJ, in that asking about Ashara and asking Jon's parentage is the same question. It's Ned's reaction that gives credence to the rumors.

    When did I get aggressive? You expanded the picture by a few sentences and acted as though "That cut deep" was the most important takeaway, and I pointed out that the banishment of Ashara Dayne's name as far more to the crux of the issue, because what we found is that, yes, she asked about Jon, and Ned answered Ashara by banishing her name from his realm.

    So, your criticism is that I only quoted what seemed relevant? I didn't exactly have room to include the whole series of books.

    Quick question for R+L=J believers.

    That takes it a bit too far. "Ashara Dayne's name was never heard in Winterfell again" is a far stronger clue to the topic of conversation than "That cut deep" It doesn't say "Jon's parentage was never openly speculated about". It says "Ashara Dayne's name was never heard" , indicating that the topics are one in the same.

    Interesting. I hadn't considered Howland and Ashara getting together, but I guess it's not impossible.
